Used Pod HD and the best powered wedge you can afford.

I'm a big tube man, but to do what you want to do it's the wrong way to go.


Edit. The wedge is just for those times you want to jam with people. For headphones only, omit it and put the money towards some killer headphones.

Used Peavey Vypyr Tube 60 is a hybrid that sounds great at all volumes.

Tube amps, as a rule, don't have headphone jacks. Extremely few that I know of, can probably count on one hand.

If they have tubes in em and they have a headphone jack, they're probably hybrid...

Yamaha THR series, not tube but it's so close, just get it. 300 bucks so many different tones. Particularly the THR 10X

doesn't seem like it gets very loud though? I also need to it for jamming with people.

Oh it get's loud, easily louder than a drummer.

TS, why do you want headphones? Is your girlfriend having cramps?

Also recall that an amps headphone out typically sounds like crap compared to the speaker, at least my Randall RG100 does. Depending on the sound you want get the POD or look into a Vox Amplug.
